Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Captain Jack Sparrow is back. This time, with new characters on his quest for the fabled fountain of youth. If you have been wondering why Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann didn't reprised their roles because the story arc which was the first three movies ends with the last one, At World's End. 

What's good with the latest movie was that we never get tired of Jack Sparrow. When the first of the Pirates movie was made, it was never intended for Jack Sparrow as a main character because it really focuses on Will Turner. But because Johnny Depp's performances was so good that the the production decided to make Jack Sparrow a main character. The latest, On Stranger Tides is another movie continuing Jack Sparrow's exploits.

About the fountain of youth, there were countless of fables that dates back from Alexander the Great's era until the time of exploration. For the first time in the Pirates movie, they included an nonfictional pirate Blackbeard. There were also stories about the most famous pirate. Some say he was bad, others say good depending on who's telling the story. Nevertheless, he is what Jack Sparrow describes, "the most feared pirate of all".

The 3D of the movie was well worth it since it wasn't wasted in viewing the movie. It's really best to watch in a 3D cinema. Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opens today in cinemas,2D or 3D and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Philippines. The advance screening was held at IMAX cinema at SM City North EDSA.
